My works are often written with specific performers in mind, involving their intimate participation in the creative process. My closest collaborators in this fashion have included the Quatuor Bozzini, conductor Ilan Volkov, cellist Charles Curtis, pianist Philip Thomas, and violinist Mira Benjamin. Pieces of mine written expressly for them have been toured and performed across the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Norway, Uruguay, and Canada.
Over the last 15 years I’ve received over 25 professional commissions from soloists, ensembles and orchestras both in Canada and across Europe. Notable performers include the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Oslo Philharmonic, EXAUDI Vocal Ensemble, the London Sinfonietta, Apartment House, I Musici de Montréal, and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
Festivals and venues featuring my music have included Monday Evening Concerts (Los Angeles), Tectonics Glasgow, the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Only Connect Oslo, Ostrava Days, World Music Days (Ljubljana), Music we’d like to hear (London), Kammer Klang (Café OTO, London), Transit (Leuven), and Núcleo Música Nueva de Montevideo, among many others. In 2015, the AngelicA Festival of Bologna presented three concerts featuring my work.
